In October 2017 Forbes released an article entitled “Fed Is Best Foundation Says Says WHO Breastfeeding Guidelines Fail To Meet Human Rights Standards"
If your first encounter with the Fed Is Best Foundation was reading the Forbes article, you would probably come away agreeing that the WHO is being negligent and denying babies human rights.
So, you might be wondering if their claim is valid.
Is the UNICEF/WHO focus on breastfeeding rates and the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative putting babies lives at needless risk for the sake of politics?
What follows, is a three part series investigating the choices and policies of both the Fed Is Best Foundation and the Baby Friendly Hospital Innovative, looking at the failings and ethics of both sides.
Part 1 - Discusses who the Fed Is Best Movement are, how they began, who they align with, and what that suggests about their integrity.
Part 2 - Focuses on what the Fed Is Best Foundation hope to achieve in their negotiations with the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative
And Part 3 - Looks at alternative approaches the Fed Is Best Foundation could take.
All three cover various problems with the Baby Friendly Hospital Innovative, interspersed through the discussion wherever relevant.
Finally I've included my first article on the Fed Is Best Foundation (Dehydrated Babies) for further background.
